equity-vs-equality

(With thanks to the Becoming Radical blog for the image.)

If and when we win the case in the Supreme Court, I think we should rename the Equality Act to the Equity Act.

A lot of people seem to be talking about Equality between non-disabled pushchair users and wheelchair users. That may be Equality, but it’s not Equity.

Equal rights of access to the wheelchair space on buggies means I sometimes can’t travel – whereas pushchair users have the option of folding their buggy and traveling if I’m in the space. Particularly if they use sensible buggies, slings for newborn kids, etc. etc.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
